“The Center will be the focus of our attention, the place where we pursue our passions, and the forum for our public service for as long as we live.” - President George W. Bush November 12, 2009. www.bushcenter.org
Rooted in the guiding principles of President George W. Bush and Mrs. Laura Bush, the Bush Center engages communities in the United States and around the world by cultivating leaders and advancing policies to solve today’s most pressing challenges.

Bush Institute. The Bush Institute, founded by President and Mrs. Bush in 2009, is a public policy center with the mission of advancing freedom by expanding opportunities for individuals at home and abroad. The work of the Bush Institute is inspired by the principles that guided the Bushes in public life.
